J.J. Abrams saves the best news about things that won't suck in Star Wars Episode VII for his charity videos. The first time he put out the word about the UNICEF-benefitting Force for Change, he showed us a creature built with practical effects. Now, breathe another sigh of relief as you get look at this X-Wing.
Although some fans thought it looked like a Z-95 Headhunter, the official Star Wars Twitter account confirmed the ship you're seeing here is a new iteration of the most famous rebel fighter. (Cue the sound of thousands of lightsabers retracting simultaneously.)
@CDCanimation It is in fact an Episode VII X-wing, not a Z-95.

Earlier leaks from the set also indicated that Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, a one-of-a-kind modified Corellian light freighter, would also be making an appearance in Disney's first Star Wars sequel.
So far, so good.
